A traditional semi-detached Selkirk villa with adaptable accommodation and a lovely rear garden Located in a quiet residential area of Selkirk within walking distance of the town centre, this semi-detached villa has an elevated setting that provides superb views to the front, while the terraced garden at the rear is a major feature in its own right. Combining traditional period character and features (deep skirtings, ornate plasterwork, combed ceilings and original woodwork) with modern fixtures and fittings, the ground floor accommodation comprises attractive entrance hall leading to two spacious reception rooms – front-facing living room with fireplace and multi-fuel stove and family/TV room or dining room at the rear, also with focal fireplace – and a dining area with an alcove into the adjoining kitchen, which is well equipped and includes wood-effect units, slate tiled floor, tiled splashbacks and range-style cooker.

On the upper floor – reached by way of a staircase with ornate wooden balustrade – are three good-sized bedrooms (two double size and one single, which could be a nursery or study – one of the double bedrooms also has extensive built-in storage) and family bathroom with mains shower. The property sits well back from the road, with steps leading up to the entrance and continuing up to the rear where there is an outhouse and coal store and garden beyond. The front garden is mainly low maintenance shrubs - the main feature is without doubt the rear garden, which has a delightful terraced deck for outdoor dining and entertaining and then continues up to the top section where a pretty summerhouse with double door entrance and patio comes as an unexpected bonus and offers a leafy, tranquil retreat for reading, writing or hobbies. Attractively presented throughout, this property offers exceptional value for money and makes an ideal family home in a desirable – and rarely available – residential area.
“The elevated setting provides outstanding views and the terraced garden at the rear offers an escape from the day to day routine ”
